Music industry veteran Danny Goldberg is joining liberal talk radio network Air America as CEO, a position that has been open since acting CEO Doug Kreeger stepped down in December. Kreeger remains on the board.

Goldberg stepped down earlier this month as chairman/CEO of Artemis Records, the company he founded in 1999.

Goldberg -- who is on the board of directors of the New York Civil Liberties Union and is the president of the ACLU Foundation of Southern California -- has also held senior executive positions at Atlantic, Mercury and Warner Bros. Records and co-founded Modern Records in 1974.

A noted activist, Goldberg co-produced and -directed a documentary on the landmark "No Nukes" concert. As a journalist, he reviewed Woodstock for Billboard in 1969. He operated Gold Mountain Entertainment from 1983-92, where he managed Nirvana, Bonnie Raitt and the Beastie Boys, among other clients.
